My 25 year old son had 2 cysts removed from the inside of his

Resolved Question:

My 25 year old son had 2 cysts removed from the inside of his eyelid over a year ago. After 6 months we went to another opthamologist for a 2nd opinion due to the fact that his eye is now droopy and has two very large red hard bumps on his lids. The 2nd Dr. just said, "well, sorry there is nothing I can do because it's scar tissue inside the eyelid." I feel horrible for my son because everywhere he goe's people are alway's asking him what happend to his eye and he is ver embarrased. Do you know of ANYTHING that we can do or another kind of Dr. that would specialize in this kind of area? Thanks, Lisa
